We are so pleased to have Helen Britton, internationally acclaimed artist and jeweler, returning to give a lecture about her work on Friday evening March 23rd at 7pm.

Helen Britton is known for assembling objects, collecting, and bringing new life to trinkets, charms and amulets. “I see in these components all the effort, humour, joy and failure of our existence. They seek out in the most unpretentious way everything that has driven our species since time immemorial, right back down to plastic versions of shells so very similar to those found in the Blombos cave, strung together 70 thousand years ago.”

Helen began her artistic journey at Curtin University in her home country of Australia before moving to Munich to complete her postgraduate study at the Academy of Fine Arts with Professor Otto Künzli. She currently lives and works in Munich and her work can be found at The Art Gallery of South Australia, Stedelijk Museum, Stichting Françoise van den Bosch, Auckland Museum, The National Gallery of Australia, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art to name a few.

Helen’s work is truly breathtaking and we hope that you can join us for this special event!
